Spay & Neuter
Services

Thousands of pets are spayed or neutered each year at the AWS Community Veterinary Clinic in Kennebunk. In addition to providing surgeries to our resident pets, we offer affordable spay/neuter services for dogs, cats and rabbits belonging to members of our community.

We can spay or neuter your pet

Spay/neuter surgeries are by appointment only and take place Monday – Friday. Pets are dropped off in the morning and picked up the same afternoon. Please visit our pre-op and post-op care page for more information on what to expect on your pet’s surgery day.

We offer a two-tiered pricing system for our spay/neuter services: Community Pricing and our Companion Program, based on income qualifications. Donations to the Companions for Life Fund support the Companion Program. 

See if you meet the guidelines.

We're in a heat wave! ☀ With temperatures reaching the mid 90s with high humidity and haze, it's important to know how to keep pets safe and cool in extreme weather. Learn the signs and symptoms and heatstroke in your pet! 

❃ Heavy Panting
❃ Rapid Breathing
❃ Excessive Drooling
❃ Excessive Thirst
❃ Incoordination
❃ Glassy Eyes
❃ Bright Red Gums & Tongue
❃ Vomiting

If you suspect heatstroke in your pet, immediately get them out of the sun and heat and into a cooler area. You can splash them with cool water or apply cold compresses to their face, belly, armpits, and feet. Then, call your veterinarian or local emergency veterinary hospital immediately.

Learn more safety tips on our newest blog post online. We hope you have a safe, fun, and cool summer!
We have the most heartwarming Happy Homes story to share! Lana, who was adopted back in January of 2023, has been living with her perfect family and truly being a loyal and loving companion. It just goes to show you that you never know how an animal may change your life. Here's what her mom has to say about her now! 

"Lana is an amazing dog and has been the light of me and my daughter’s life. She helped us through some tough times. She has a natural gift as she could always sense when my daughter was about to have her Vertigo moments. And she also was a protective girl around her after my daughter and I were in a car accident when we got hit by a drunk driver. This dog was a true friend and hero and I couldn’t imagine life without her!"
Yesterday was the last day of school for 7th graders at the Middle School of the Kennebunks, and per their annual tradition they visited AWS! Art students at the school make dog and cat toys for us every year and then celebrate by hand delivering the donations right to our door. They then take a tour of our facility and visit with the pets they helped. We love community traditions like this! Happy summer!
